This morning I got woken up by a ton of banging downstairs. When I was finally able to open my eyes and get up, I met my dad in the hallway. It turns out a giant grey squirrel got in the house and my cat was chasing it all over the place. The squirrel got upstairs and ran across my dad while he was laying in bed, followed by my cat. Long story short, my dad was able to open the window and let the squirrel run out. My cat almost followed, but managed to stop before jumping out the second story window. COOL STORY, BRO!
This week has been pretty lackluster with interesting links and stories to post about, with a couple exceptions, so you're just going to have to live with the stuff I give you!
Let's start out with the awesome stuff first... BORDERLANDS 2 TRAILER! Because it's so awesome, I'm not even going to link it. I'm going to post the actual video here. ENJOY!
How can I follow up a video game trailer as awesome as that? Easy... with this! MASS EFFECT 3: TAKE EARTH BACK cinematic trailer! Also provided here, link-free!
Now that the awesome stuff is out of the way, we can move on to the more milder things. Such as...
Have you ever looked at Batman and wondered what he would look like if he was alive back in medieval times? No, not the dinner and show, the actual historical time. Well wonder no more! [geekologie]
LOOK! UP IN THE SKY! IT'S A BIRD! IT'S A PLANE! NO.... IT'S... THE DEATH STAR!! Now how in the world could you confuse the Death Star with a bird or plane? Seriously people, open your eyes! What if the Death Star were an actual real thing? How much would it actually cost to build something like that, and how long? Well some fancy schmancy college kids decided to put their heads together and come up with an actual cost. [gammasquad]
A guy by the name of Ulises Farinas decided he'd draw a mural. A mural of Tatooine. A mural of Tatooine with a bunch of sci-fi characters in it. A very large mural of Tatooine with a bunch of sci-fi characters in it, with rumors that Waldo is also hidden somewhere in said mural. Sadly, it looks like Carmen Sandiego has alluded us once again. [geekosystem]
Those Make-a-Wish kids get all the coolest things, including a giant drivable R2-D2. Yep. Luckiest kid on earth. Apparently this WAS the droid he was looking for. [geekologie]
Somebody had to say it.
You know how in all those cartoons and movies, when people are looking for a hidden door, they always start pulling books that are conveniently positioned on a book case near the hidden door in question. What if you could actually create a real life hidden book switch that could open a hidden door, turn on a light, release a boxing glove that comes out and punches you in the face, or pretty much whatever you wanted it to do? WELL YOU CAN! YOUR CHILDHOOD DREAM CAN BECOME A REALITY! [howtogeek]
What's cooler than
being cool snowboarding at night? How about snowboarding at night while emitting your own light created by the LED snow suit you made. Just add some wings and you'll look like an angel coming down the hill, or a ghost that failed it's Transparency 101 class. [geekologie]
Still playing Skyrim? I know I am, especially with the new Skyrim Steam Worshop release. Here's a list of the top 10 Skyrim Steam Workshop mods. Pet dragon anyone? [ugo]
Here's a little bit of good news on the Fringe front. It looks like Twitter hashtags might just save Fringe from being cancelled. (please please please please let this work!) [blastr]
Lastly I'll leave you with a funny video of Mario vs The Indestructible Castle. [howtogeek]
